Job Title: Rankin-Sneddon Research Fellowship in Mathematics
Vacancy Ref: 023410
Salary: Grade 7; Salary £35,210 - £39,610 per annum

The University of Glasgow, established in 1451, is a member of the UK's Russell Group of leading universities. The University is committed to enhancing its position as one of the world's great broad-based research-intensive universities. In REF 2014, the School was ranked 8th in the UK for research intensity in the mathematical sciences. 

The School of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for one of three 3-year Rankin-Sneddon Research Fellowships in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. The candidates will undertake independent research in a field of mathematics (pure or applied) that complements or reinforces the existing research strengths within the School.

While primarily a research position, these fellowships will carry a light teaching load, which will normally mean lecturing one 20-credit course, or two 10-credit courses, with associated tutorials, each academic year. This will typically translate into approximately 4 contact hours per week in each of two 11-week semesters per year, the distribution of which may be flexible. Research fellows will also have the opportunity to supervise Honours and/or Masters Projects in their area of interest.

Informal enquiries may be directed to Head of Mathematics, Prof Tara Brendle, tara.brendle@glasgow.ac.uk

Closing Date: 28th November 2018
